been told that my cholesterol is high at 7 or 7ish (cant remember exact number sorry). the gp nurse has said she is going to give me 6months to reduce it so i can avoid yet more medication. she also stated that my risk of strokes/heart attacks is only about 4%-quite pleased with this but very surprised as i have a very big history of these illnessess in my close family. what im asking is has anyone else managed to reduce high cholesterol without tablets and if so how. i know ive got to eat low fat which on the whole i do, its more that i just eat large portions. im vegetarian so by rights it should be easy -but how lol...any advice would be lovely x
